If I could have supper with one person in the world…

It would be…

Shakespeare? No. As much as I love his plays and admire his wonderful use of language – his pithy dialogue, his magical monologues, his sumptuous sonnets – I fear that other than me praising him, I probably wouldn’t understand most of what he would say and that the difference in our eras might make conversation rather awkward.


Brad Pitt? No. As much as I think that he is one of the most beautiful human beings in the world and that he is a fantastic actor, I undoubtedly would be so star-struck that anything I would try to say would come out as complete gibberish. Furthermore, there would be that worry that Angelina Jolie would storm in at any minute and attack.


J K Rowling? No. As much as Harry Potter defined my youth; including an hour-long stint at the front door waiting for my Hogwarts letter to arrive, I think that the advice on being an author that she’d give me over supper, I could already find in the Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook (her spread).


No, not J K Rowling -( though more on this track), not Brad Pitt and not William Shakespeare. No, no, no. If I could, at this current time, as my 23-year-old self, have supper with anyone in the world, it would be with…Bryony Gordon.

Intelligent, quick-witted and unfailingly entertaining, Bryony Gordon is my journalistic inspiration. She is doing exactly what I want to be doing (writing-wise; I’m not ready for marriage or a baby) and a supper picking the brain and chatting with someone who has made a success –  in one of the hardest industries to be successful in – of themselves, well that would be, in the words of all x-factor contestants, ‘ a dream come true.’ Hopefully I don’t sound like too much of a sycophant.


A wise man once told me that confiding ‘online’ is like confiding into a megaphone. Well this is a something that I don’t mind sharing!
